    We are a couple of weeks out from this year's convention and it is looking to be huge. Van Dyke's/McKenzie, Jonas, TruFitt, Wildlife Gallery,,,,, will all be set up in the supply room. Brian from the Wildlife Gallery asked, if you plan on bringing hides for tanning to the show, please contact him at the Mt. Home, TX facility. Marshell Ray of AR has agreed to present the final seminar on antler repairs, molding, & casting. Craig Lewis and the UTA has graciously donated $100 to our hospitality room. The UTA is also sending the coolest looking trophy in the taxidermy industry, The Artisan Award, for one lucky recipient at our banquet. I would personally like to invite all my taxidermy.net friends to join me and the OKTA for an outstanding weekend of friendship, learning, and competition. Don't forget to book your rooms early at the Crowne Plaza. It helps the OKTA out tremendously, allowing us to meet our room quota. Also, preregistering with Janell Reid by mail, is going to saw you some money, as compared to the "day of show" head table prize, so send those registrations in. I hope to see you there June 23rd in OKC.
     
  5. This is going to be a great convention! I hope to see everyone out there for three days of fun and learning. This will be my first time to compete and am excited to learn what I need to do to improve to the next level in my taxidermy adventure.
     
  6. Tomorrow is the start of all the fun! Hope to see everyone there!!!!
